Tsoutsouras Gorge
(2 votes)

The canyon of Tsoutsouras is located in Tsoutsouras village and is one of the many inaccessible canyons of the area. It starts at position Sfakias and it's exit is located near the settlement, in Larinaki area, and at first glance it causes awe.

The canyon, although it is quite short (1.5km), is an ideal place for canyoning for beginners. The only way to access it is by using ropes, as there are 12 descents (rappels), the largest of which is 30m high. Most rappels are located near the exit of the gorge, where it deepens and rocks get amazing colors.During the spring, there is water and rappelling down the waterfalls is an amazing experience.
